Tales of Chelm Pt. 3: How the Chelmites Captured the Moon

Tales of Chelm Pt. 3: How the Chelmites Captured the Moon

In this third installment in the Chelm series, Gimpel and Barel the Beadle concoct a plan to capture the moon and help the poor citizens of Chelm.

Gimpel proposes that they capture the moon by bringing in a big barrel of borscht. When the moon is reflected in barrel, they seal and cover it to “entrap” it. However, upon uncovering the barrel, they realize that they have made a crucial mistake. This installment is jam-packed with zaniness and utilizes mask work.

The JArtsTM TheatreWorks production of Tales of Chelm is based on the  book  “The Wise Folk of Chelm,” by Semour Rossel. Adaptors Jesse Garlick and Dori Robinson
